THINK Classroom Letters

A couple years ago, someone gave us a printout with the letters THINK to help kids decide to say something. Is it True, is it Helpful, is it Inspiring, is it Necessary, is it Kind? Kids can review these benchmarks to decide if what is in their mind is worth saying out loud. When I saw the wooden THINK letters in the Dollar section at Target, I snatched them up. I knew they’d make great classroom art for my son’s teacher.

And they’re the perfect project to share this week! All week long I’m sharing quick crafts as part of Craft Lightning Back to School Week! My friends Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and Kara from Happy Go Lucky are crafting along with me creating their own fun and fast 15 minute craft each day. Check out their fun and fast craft ideas below, along with some more ideas from our craftiest friends around the internet!

THINK Classroom Letters - a great teacher gift, perfect in a Homeschool Classroom

To make these THINK letters, you’ll need:

Letters T-H-I-N-K. I found wooden letters as one set. You could use paper mache letters from the craft store.
Paint Pens

letter supplies

Prep your paint pens by shaking them. Write on each letter.

write on letters

Write on all the letters.

On the T: Is it True?
On the H: Is it Helpful?
On the I: Is it Inspiring?
On the N: Is it Necessary?
On the K: Is it Kind?

finish writing letters

That’s really all there is to making these letters! Sometimes crafting is just adding your personal touch to something.

If you’re not confident with your handwriting, you can cut vinyl or use stencils to write on the letters.
